Sermon: Jesus Can Overcome My Doubts

Scripture: Mark 16: 1-16


Resurrection morning was a time filled with all kinds of doubt. Even though Jesus had tried to prepare His followers for the resurrection, they just didn’t get it. Everything that took place that morning shows that they just did not expect Jesus to be raised up from the dead.

I’m going to mention several verses here, and the references are all recorded on your Note Sheet. You’ve heard all these references at one time or another, but I’m just pulling them all together to show the doubt that they had.

Mark 16:1-8 tells how several women came bringing spices to anoint Jesus’ body, which is a sure sign that they expected Jesus to be dead, and to remain dead. When the angel told them Jesus had risen, here’s what Mark writes, 8 Trembling and bewildered, the women went out and fled from the tomb. They said nothing to anyone, because they were afraid.”

It doesn’t specifically mention doubt here, but when you put it together with John 20: 1-2, where Mary Magdalene is at the tomb by herself, sees the stone rolled away, and 2 So she came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said, "They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don't know where they have put him!" So she believes that somebody has removed Jesus’ body; not that He has risen.
